Teradata positioned in leader quadrant for its "Ability to Execute" data warehouse implementations
DAYTON, Ohio - Teradata, a division of NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), announced that Gartner, Inc. has published its Data Warehouse database management system (DBMS) Magic Quadrant Update with Teradata positioned in the leader quadrant based on "Ability to Execute" and "Completeness of Vision" of its data warehouse implementations.*
Commonly consulted by executives, Gartner provides an annual update of the Data Warehouse DBMS Magic Quadrant, which evaluates vendors based on the ability to execute and the completeness of vision. According to Gartner, vendors who are positioned in the leader quadrant are performing well today, have a clear vision of market direction and are actively building competencies to sustain their leadership position in the market.
"Teradata has a tireless commitment to help businesses be more profitable by implementing and leveraging a data warehouse," said Vickie Farrell, vice president of Teradata warehouse marketing. "We see a significant number of executives turning to Teradata enterprise-wide data warehouses to improve operational efficiency and drive business growth.

The Magic Quadrant is Gartner's opinion and is an analytical representation of a marketplace at and for a specific time period. It measures vendors against Gartner-defined criteria for a marketplace. The positioning of vendors within a Magic Quadrant is based on the complex interplay of many factors. Gartner does not advise enterprises to select only those firms in the Leaders segment. In some situations, firms in the Visionary, Challenger, or Niche Player segments may be the right match for an enterprise's requirements. Well-informed vendor selection decisions should rely on more than a Magic Quadrant.
